Keeping Cool in the Car

Keep cool in the car with homemade air conditioning. Use a wet towel, wrung out, around your shoulders and neck to stay cool.

Soak a medium towel in ice water, wring it out, and bring it with you in the hot car to keep cool. Also bring a bowl of ice water to refresh the towel. This towel can be draped over your left arm and shoulder to keep the sunburn away, drape over your head, or rolled and put behind your neck. Sometimes I drape it over my lap. This prevents sunburn and keeps me cool. There is no need to use the car's a/c, which will reduce your gas mileage. I drove through the California desert in a car that did not have a/c and it works!

Great idea! I have tried this before when just sitting outside, but not in my car. Will have to try it tomorrow. Thanks!

Good ideas Mary, but it has been proven that driving with your windows down instead of air condition on uses more gas. The pull of the car with the air going through the car makes it work harder.


Something like that. I saw it on the news one night.
